    Wanted some chili and corn bread today so the MAK got uncovered.

    Got my meat ready. 2 lbs GB and 1 lb pork, 5 slices home smoked bacon.

    MAK pre heated to 350* so on goes the bacon first.

    Growing up in a spanish household my mom always had lemon juice, she said it makes the tomato wake up.

    Plate my chili. Topped with lemon juice, cheese, corn bread and more cheese and hot sauce.

    This is my dinner

    I sure could go for a bowl of that chili right now. looks great. I was wondering when you were going to make something else. I'm sure your smokers dont cool down to ambient temperature very often.
